The annual pardoning of the turkey is upon us and this year's two lucky birds are Wishbone and Drumstick. The turkeys have been given the royal treatment since arriving in Washington D.C. from Minnesota.
Meanwhile the turkeys are just like what the heck is going on here.— Onionknightbob (@onionknightbob) November 20, 2017
So glad to know @WhiteHouse can spend money to put these turkeys up at a 5 star hotel, but they can’t come up with money for healthcare and other dire needs. Also, how much money and time was spent on this idiot video, when there are so many other issues to worry over.— Chris Schmitz (@ChrisASchmitz) November 20, 2017
Every year, a national Thanksgiving turkey (and its wingman) are taken to the White House in the hopes that they can handle themselves by staying on a table, be comfortable around people and strut on command so they receive presidential pardon. https://t.co/wkJRPTNF8g— Globalnews.ca (@globalnews) November 20, 2017
With 45 in office this just doesn’t have the same cuteness to it. I’m surprised that the boys aren’t going to shoot them and 45 gives his approval— Janet Wright (@Indiogirl55) November 20, 2017
Why do I see Trump changing his mind and beheading them instead.— Monique Lowther (@MoniqueLowther) November 20, 2017
What happens if the turkeys don’t cluck out their appreciation? Please, not another tweet storm.— apipkin (@apipkin11) November 21, 2017
For Thanksgiving Donald Trump is going to pardon a turkey and then yell at it for 14 hours for not thanking him properly— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 19, 2017
Right now someone is explaining to Trump that he can’t pardon his family alongside the turkey this week.— JEN KIRKMAN (@JenKirkman) November 20, 2017
Trump is on the process of trying to figure out which turkey he is going to pardon.— Woman In The Moon (@SassyKadiK) November 21, 2017
Will it be Manafort, Kushner or Turkey Jr.?
When they ask Donald Trump which turkey he wants to pardon for Thanksgiving, he'll probably say "Donald Trump Jr"— Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) November 20, 2017
I've been waiting to see whether trump would continue the presidential tradition of pardoning a turkey, then I remembered his attorneys recently told him that he couldn't pardon himself.😏— Mae T. (@mspoint1106) November 20, 2017
This may be the first year there’s been genuine suspense about the Presidential turkey pardon.— Pete Wells (@pete_wells) November 20, 2017
After the pardon both birds will live out their natural lives at the Virginia Tech “Gobblers Rest” exhibit.
